The four-cylinder 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol engines will be produced at JLR’s £1 billion Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton. The company says they deliver up to 25% more power than the engines they replace, while consuming up to 15% less fuel. They use a range of technologies including an electro-hydraulic valvetrain, integrated exhaust manifold and a twin-scroll turbocharger with ceramic ball bearings, and will be available from next year.
Three versions of the 2.0-litre petrol Ingenium engine will be available, with 197bhp, 247bhp and 296bhp, all using a twin scroll turbo.
The Ingenium range of engines is modular, with a capacity of 500cc per cylinder, which means that parts and designs can be shared among different sizes. The arrival of the 2.0-ltre petrol Ingenium units follows the announcement of diesel versions last year. Straight-six, 3.0-litre units were confirmed earlier in 2016, and 1.5-litre, three-cylinder engines are planned as well.
